“Woke le baagbo, Komla Dumor, le nonn”, meaning in Ga, “We will forever die with Komla Dumor, he is our man.” The preceding comments came from the staunch National Democratic Congress members and cadres of the 31st December, 1981 Revolution, soon after the former President of the Republic of Ghana.

Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings announced the return of Mr Dumor of Joy FM Super Morning Show into the NDC party. Said he “Formerly this man in white, Victor Gbeho's nephew, and sitting there (pointing at Komla Dumor, after Huudu Yahaya had supplied Dumor's name to Rawlings), he was criticizing the NDC regime, now he (Dumor) has come to admit that the (NPP) is worse.”

Rawlings continued: “Your people should not be surprised why Komla Dumor is criticizing the NPP Government, because now he has come to join us.” The former President then proceeded to chronicle the failures of the NPP to the gathering.

Addressing the cadres at the hall of Osu Presbyterian Church of Ghana yesterday, the former President pointed out that during the NDC regime, Mr Dumor criticized the government for its lapses, but he has come to realise that the New Patriotic Party is worse, hence his present inclination towards the NDC.

According to former President Rawlings, having admitted that the NPP is worse, it is not surprising to her Mr Dumor it back at the Kufour-led administration nowadays. He surmised that if the television stations, were to telecast the campaign programmes of the NDC flagbearer, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, the general public would see that, Prof. Mills has more followers than the incumbent President, Mr John Agyekum Kufour. He revealed that there were some countries who are rallying behind the Kufour government because of the (AFRC) 1979 and PNDC 1981 revolution.

The ex-President lamented that ever since the revolution, previous government including the (NPP) government have undermined the P(NDC). Against that backdrop, Mr. Rawlings said it gave the NPP government room to appoint some judges so as to jail NDC top hierarchies.
